Classic Gin Gimlet Cocktail, The Perfect Summer Drink

My classic gin gimlet cocktail is perfect for entertaining, parties, or summer BBQs. Easy to make a big batch for a party, or just one for a Friday night.

Woo hoooo, its cocktail time! The gin gimlet is my GO-TO drink in the summers.  I serve it every party we have, its my  signature.  Gimlets have a few simple ingredients, but really bring the flavor. Its a sweet and summery drink to enjoy any time of the year.

This Classic Gin Gimlet Cocktail Is:

  • Tart
  • Sweet
  • Tangy
  • Refreshing
  • Delicious
  • Simple to Make
  • Great for batch cocktails for a crowd, or just one

A few days ago I posted my recipe for homemade Rose’s Lime Syrup, one of the ingredients in the gimlet.  You can find Rose’s Lime Cordial Syrup in the grocery or liquor store, but it is SO easy to make your own version.  And better too. The store-bought syrup is loaded with artificial ingredients and corn syrup, and my DIY version has just water, sugar, and lime.

So What’s In This Gin Gimlet?

  • Gin of your choice: I like Bombay, but any gin you prefer will make a darn good cocktail
  • Rose’s Lime Syrup, or my easy DIY version that has 3 simple ingredients
  • Seltzer to top: because I like a little bubbly action in my gimlet
  • Fresh squeezed lime juice to top

How Do I Make a Classic Gin Gimlet Cocktail?

  • Fill a glass to the top with ice
  • Add the gin, lime syrup, and seltzer.  Stir well to combine.
  • Top with fresh-squeezed lime juice or a lime wedge to garnish.  Serve and enjoy!
